None of us are getting any younger

29 03 2009

…so I was impressed by an initiative that I saw at my uncle’s. He had a flyer from Blue Shield offering free membership to ‘The Silver Sneakers’ for all those 60 and over (I think it was 60 — no matter). There was a long list of participating fitness clubs and gyms, all of whom allow people in this age bracket free membership so they can keep fit.

What a good idea! A health insurance fund trying to keep its long-term costs down by providing the means for the aging segment of the population to keep as fit as possible and thus keep them out of the health system for as long as possible.
